Jill had net income of $14.3 million for the fiscal year ended Jan. 3, 2016, up from $10.3 million in the same period a year ago.

Home Depot's stock gets a boost from Morgan Stanley upgrade
Shares of Home Depot Inc. edged up less than 0.1% in midday trade Thursday, but bucked the selloff in the broader retail sector, after Morgan Stanley moved to a bullish rating on the home improvement retailer. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF shed 1.2% in midday trade. Analyst Simeon Gutman upgraded Home Depot to overweight, after being at equal weight since June 2014. He boosted his stock price target to $165, which was 14% above current levels, from $150. Gutman said he has greater confidence in the growth of the home improvement industry, given research that suggests the housing recovery is till in the 'middle innings' and the belief that any negative impact from rising interest rates in the near term are being overestimated. He said Home Depot's stock had performed well in previous rising-rate environments. And even in the most aggressive tightening periods, Gutman said it took about two years to hurt spending on home improvement. Home Depot's stock has rallied 11% over the past three months, while the SPDR retail ETF has lost 6.9% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has climbed 9%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Apple's stock set for record-high open after Morgan Stanley boost price target
Shares of Apple Inc. tacked on 0.6% in premarket trade Tuesday, putting it on track to open at a record high, after an upbeat research note from Morgan Stanley, which cited optimism over China sales. Analyst Katy Huberty reiterated her overweight rating but raised her stock price target to $154, which is 13% above Friday's closing price, from $150. Huberty said she believes concerns that Apple has lost its edge in China, following a 24% decline in China revenue over the past year, are misplaced. "Our analysis of upgraders and switchers suggests China could contribute outsized growth in [fiscal year] 2018," Huberty wrote in a research note. She expects Apple's new higher-priced iPhone this year will have new smartwatch-like displays that allows for a curved form factor and longer battery life, wireless charging technology, 3D sensors and more advanced artificial-intelligence capabilities, and China users tend to be "especially sensitive to new technology and form factor changes." The stock was changing hands at $136.50 ahead of the open, which is above the all-time intraday high of $136.27 reached on Feb. 15. The stock has run up 41% over the past 12 months, while the Nasdaq 100 has climbed 28% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied 26%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

SEC fines Morgan Stanley for unsuitable sales of inverse ETFs
The Securities and Exchange Commission settled charges with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney on Tuesday, fining the firm $8 million for selling unsuitable ETF products to customers and not obtaining proof the clients understood the risks involved with purchasing inverse ETFs. Morgan Stanley admitted its wrongdoing. Those clients did not sign disclosure notices that explained that single inverse ETFs were typically unsuitable for investors planning to hold them longer than one trading session unless used as part of a trading or hedging strategy. Many of the clients who purchased single inverse ETFs to be held long-term in retirement and other accounts experienced losses. Morgan Stanley also failed to conduct risk reviews to evaluate the suitability of inverse ETFs for each advisory client and did not ensure that certain financial advisers completed training on the product and its risks.

SEC charges Morgan Stanley, Citigroup with misleading forex investors
The Securities and Exchange Commission said on Tuesday that Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Citigroup Global Markets will pay more than $2.96 million each to settle charges that they made false and misleading statements to investors about a foreign exchange trading program product. Registered representatives at both firms sold a foreign exchange trading program known as "CitiFX Alpha" to Morgan Stanley customers from August 2010 to July 2011, according to the SEC. Citigroup held a 49% ownership interest in Morgan Stanley Smith Barney at the time. The SEC complaint says the sales personnel used the program's past performance and risk metrics in investor presentations. They also failed to adequately disclose that investors could be required to borrow more than advertised to participate and that markups would be charged on each trade. Investors suffered significant losses as a result of the undisclosed leverage and hidden markups, says the SEC. Morgan Stanley and Citigroup did not admit or deny the findings but each agreed to pay a penalty of $2.25 million, to give back profits of $624 thousand and pay interest of $89 thousand.

Tesla stock upgraded because of ties to Trump and Model 3 production volume
Tesla Motors Inc. was upgraded to overweight from equal-weight at Morgan Stanley Thursday, on the belief that Model 3 production volume is improving and a "surprisingly supportive political environment," supported by CEO Elon Musk's role as strategic advisory to president-elect Donald Trump, will aid the company's expansion plans. Morgan Stanley raised its 12-month price target on the stock to $305 from $242, implying an increase of 30% from Wednesday's closing price. Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas said the upgrade also reflects a greater push by original equipment manufacturers to address the strict regulatory landscape affecting electric cars, and a recent pullback by some major competitors, such as Alphabet Inc. , that once posed a risk to Tesla. Shares of Tesla have risen 17% in the past three months and 16.5% in the past year. The S&P 500 , by comparison, is up 6% in the past three months and 21% in the past year. The stock traded 3.8% higher to $247.50 in premarket trade. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
